I've noticed, over the years, that many of my peers tend to insert the word 'all' seemingly gratuitously. You know what I'm talking about:

Who's all going?
What's all there?

The all seems rather useless to me, but is it grammatically correct to have it in there?

...Nothing you've ever...

Never seen it used like that before.

Kill your friend, kill your friend's girlfriend, then kill the person she's cheating on him with. Then rape all three of them, then kill yourself, then rape yourself.

All =/= alltogether
Soon you will sit on the bench
of those who deny I have my soul
You sell a dream you create
Condemned by what you condemned before
Smooth are the words you sing down and high
Underground is your joy your laws

It just sounds so unnatural to me. Makes me want to gauge someone's eyes out, metaphorically.

I'm pretty sure that grammatically, it is incorrect. In the cases given, anyway. There are, I'm sure, some times when it's appropriate, but in the examples given, it's incorrect to say who's altogether there." Well, everyone there is there. So, that's a case of asking for specifics, anyway, making it a bad question with a grammatical flaw.

If you're looking to be able to take credit cards in-person (not over the internet where paypal will work), pm me and I can hook you up with the stuff you need.

unless he's wanting to measure them. perhaps they are very large.
and that was the worst metaphor ever. how is wanting to gouge someone's eyes out a metaphor for "unnatural" slang?

edit: I think Muphin needs to go back to school

^Spelling pwned...
Anyway, the "all" thing I believe is probably a regional thing. Like in some states in the south they say y'all or something. But in the north it's you all or just you.
Also 'you' can imply singular or plural subjects depending on how it's used. 'You all' implies plural only.
Another regional thing is the word for soda-pop in the north is pop, in the south it's soda, and in Texas it's all just coke. Lol, so in Texas apparently I would call sprite coke.

On the topic of grammar, I think it's incorrect to refer to a band with "are".
Ex: Metallica are one of the big four thrash metal bands.

A band is a collective, single entity, regardless of whether or not the name of the band is singular (ie. Incubus) or plural in nature (ie. The Doors). Therefore, all bands should be addressed as singular nouns.
Ex: The Doors is a classic rock band.

...modes and scales are still useless.

Do not quote me but i believe that is incorrect. The use of words where unneeded is often grammatically incorrect. For instance: "Where is my book?" would be correct. "Where is my book at?" is not correct due to the added use of at.
However, in the use of formal wording, apostrophes are not expected to be used. So it is often up to interpretations.

The second one's incorrect because you're not supposed to end a sentence with a preposition, I believe.
